Robin Bell

1977 –

In the canoe slalom singles, Robin Bell finished ninth at Sydney 2000 and an agonisingly close fourth at Athens 2004, after leading with three paddlers remaining. Winning the 2005 world championship and many other grand performances on the world stage set him up for a good performance at Beijing 2008 where he was ranked no.3. He duly won the bronze medal behind multi-world champion and 1996 Olympic gold medallist, Michal Martikan of Slovakia, and David Florence from Great Britain.  Bell’s medal was the first by an Australian male in Olympic slalom canoe/kayak.
